RSMRSM Legal LLP has been listed in The Legal 500 for the first time, ranking among the UK’s best firms for corporate and commercial partnership advice.

RSM Legal LLP was the only multi-disciplinary practice to be listed in the corporate and commercial partnership list.

Rachel Khiara, a partner within RSM’s client legal services practice is also listed on the elite ‘leading lawyers’ list for corporate and commercial partnership advice, one of just 15 UK lawyers to make the cut.

RSM Legal LLP is part of the wider RSM audit, tax and consulting firm – a multi-disciplinary practice which gained accreditation to practise law from the Solicitors Regulation Authority in 2016. The firm’s current legal services offering now comprises employment, corporate, partnership, private client and employee share schemes advice.

Carolyn Brown, the head of RSM Legal LLP, who was also recommended in The Legal 500 editorial alongside Rachel Khiara said: ‘I’m thrilled that RSM Legal LLP has achieved a listing in The Legal 500. This is a very important milestone for our growing practice as we become more established in the legal marketplace. It is also a validation of the talent that we have been able to attract.’

The Legal 500 assesses the strengths of law firms in over 100 jurisdictions. The rankings are based on a series of criteria, using feedback from clients, submissions from law firms and interviews with leading private practice lawyers.
